5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful! Quality! Thick Aluminum! Easy to work with! Excellent Airflow! Very Organized Inside! Great Cable Management!

Pros: One of the most beautiful cases out there. I would put it on par with Lian Li aluminum sheeting quality but for a fraction of the price, and with a few less user friendly touches, and a much better look that is more balanced and centered. The alumnum is very thick, and edges are well rounded where needed. The airflow is FAR superior to many tiny Lian Li cases as well (or any mini itx case for that matter). It actually looks nicer than similar cases since the front ports are centered and have stainless steel inserts. This thing has quality written all over it from the harder to scratch window to the neat little metal case feet. I mean, even the power button has a pretty blue circle light that looks super cool! This holds larger PSUs for someone wanting to cram a 1 kilowatt PSU (like a Seasonic x1050) in it just an FYI (although squeezing a PSU in that size will require not having the motherboard in it beforehand). Also, it is very easy to manage cables around the top edge near the back of the PSU as they tuck out of sight very well and stay put. The motherboard screw holes are actually on risers so you have a full centimeter to squeeze cables behind the motherboard which is GREAT! Everything is neat and perfectly placed for function and beauty. This has 2 pci slots for double wide cards and a little room under for a hard drive. Having a 120mm fan is great since you can remove a lot of air, but keep it on low RPM for ultimate silence. The door also sits on very nicely and instead of sliding on and scratching the edges, you just sort of fold it into place and screw it in, very good design. Also, with a dual 2.5” drive attachment, you can fit a total of 4 2.5” drives which is perfect for dual SSD and dual backup. Also, I removed the front drive/fan holder inside since I only used one drive. It also makes it look neater inside and help with cable management since the bulk of the cables are at the front.

Cons: No cons--the reality is if you want a case this small, this is the best it is going to get and you just need to accept the tediousness and time it takes to build such a compact computer.

Other Thoughts: This case is definitely superior to the Legacy V3. I would only recommend the Legacy V3 for an i5 or lower, a basic motherboard (without a buch of stuff sticking out all over like the higher end ASUS motherboards have) and a compact modular PSU so you do not have to worry about airflow. I had initially got the V3 but I am satisfied with this one even though it takes up more vertical space.

I fit everything listed below beautifully inside the case with excellent cable management. This case could easily handle a 2 fan video card. The three fan ones would probably be pushing it.

Specs for the ultimate non gaming silent small computer: Asus Maximus VII Impact mITX z97 Chipset, 16gb (2x8GB) Patriot DDR3 2133, Intel i7 4790s, Noctua NH-L9-i, Zalman Fanmate controller, Rosewill case fan on low, Rosewill U2-S window case, intel 730 240GB SSD, AMD MultiView 2460 (Fanless), and of course a Rosewill Silentnight 500 (Fanless) (no coil whine).

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect case

Pros: Lots of room for its size, well placed cords, ect. I added a closed loop cpu cooler-one con with that, see below

Cons: I had to move the fan to outer rear because of the height of the memory I have prevented me from mounting the radiator and the fan inside, but it is irrelevant because it is not seen.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because of the size/shape, plus the brushed aluminum look. It is nice looking, already have gotten complements on it. I use it as a media control/living room player.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very solid construction - beautiful to look at. Actually has a lot of space for being a mini-ITX tower. Overall, just a really high quality case that I love looking at on my work desk.

Cons: This is fickle, but it shipped with some minor scratches. It's almost ridiculous to dock an egg for this - but it really irked me. And I'm sure it isn't typical.

Just be careful when building your PC. It's easy to scratch.

Other Thoughts: Despite the scratches, which probably weren't Rosewill's fault, I highly recommend this product.

5 out of 5 eggsMini-ITX Tower

Pros: Surprisingly high quality. USB 3 plugs are in a different corner than the power button (other cases put them together and is annoying to reset your system when you just want to plug in a usb cable). ATX size power supply.

Cons: Could not find any so far.

5 out of 5 eggsVery, very nice

Pros: Light weight, window, build quality, cable management.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: First thing you notice is the light weight, next is how well this is made and the attention to detail. Any place two pieces of aluminum join there are rubber pads or washers. I have had no problems with vibration.

For a mini ITX case there is actually some good cable management. Which is great with this being a windowed case. The motherboard stand offs are 1/2" so there is room under the motherboard to hide cables. You can also hide some under the front fan/hard drive mount.

The case is very quite and looks fantastic.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Case!

Pros: SFF case but can utilize a full-sized double-slot video card, great build finish, beautiful curved aluminum. Easy to work with, fantastic internal layout, window!

Cons: No optical drive bay, doesn't fold my laundry.

Other Thoughts: This case is amazing! I actually bought it from an online retailer in Germany a month ago because it wasn't available in the US until now. This case is made by Jonsbo so you can look up their website and see tons more photos and all the specs. If you want to build a SFF gaming PC that has a fantastic internal layout then you can't go wrong with this case. If you want even more room then you could go with a SFX power supply. I bought the SILVERSTONE ST45SF-G 450W from NewEgg and its fantastic!

Anyway, love this case and thought I would share. And dang I wish I'd have known NewEgg was going to stock it so I would have gotten it for $30 cheaper than what I paid.
